Schoolnet: Eastern Cape School Net Project

Schoolnet: Eastern Cape School Net Project

On behalf of the Eastern Cape Schoolnet committee, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the first two schools from this area onto the Internet. The schools are Victoria Park High School and Westering High School.

There 5 new nodes altogether and I enumerate:

1. (thats the pilot site I use)

Mike Assherton-Smith (Eastern Cape Schoolnet technical coordinator)
2.  (Mike's after hours address)
3.  (Port Elizabeth Teachers Centre)

Victoria Park High School (Warren Butler)

Westering High School (Louis van Dyk)

For those that are technically minded, the schools use the SNUUPM package by Mike Lawrie for email and Usenet news dialup access. The schools dial a central host at the Port Elizabeth Technikon i.e., a HP Unix box.

Sendmail (not smail) is used to pass email to the Schoolnet UUCP peers. There are two zone masters for the domain. They are (primary) and (secondary)

This is an initial configuration and is both functional and stable.

I would personally like to thank the Eastern Cape Schoolnet Committee who, as a unit, contributed to a successful launch of the project in this area, Mark Elkins for allowing zone authority for the domain to be managed locally and Stephen Marquard for his ongoing technical advice and expertise.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 4 vs 10 (NIV)
